Kundan Shah's contribution to alternate cinema remarkable: Sonia

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron was his first film as director and is considered as one of the classics of Hindi cinema.

Ben McAdoo clueless about how predictable his Giants offense is
Both players have surpassed various franchise records for their respective teams and have gone to a combined 10 Pro Bowls. I don't think we're executing the way that we can at a high level. "We are all irritable right now and rightfully so".

Veteran Bollywood director Kundan Shah breathed his last on Saturday morning at his residence in Mumbai.

Student Arrested, Officer Injured During High School Lockdown in Melrose, Mass.
In a message thread with a student at the school, the teen allegedly wrote: "We shooting up your school tomorrow no one safe". The Dysart Unified School District and the El Mirage Police Department are investigating threats sent to students.

The film Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro was Shah's first film as director and starred Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Shah, Satish Kaushik, Bhakti Barve and Neena Gupta. The film became a surprise hit as it dealt with the social controversial issue of single parenthood. Amitabh Bahchchan's Inquilab, Rajesh Khanna's Aaj ka MLA Ram Avtaar, Jitendra's Meri Awaaz Suno and Yesh Desh were all being made at around the same time but while commercial film makers chose to drive home their message through invective spewed by teeth-clenching, larger-than-life heroes, Shah chose to rely on subtle humour and realistic characters. I was just a cameraperson and he showed me around the set personally. Had he been alive, Shah would have turned 70 on October 19. Kundan Shah was also the director the very popular sitcoms - Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, Nukkad and Wagle Ki Duniya - all aired on Doordarshan in the '80's. For a majority of us, the only thing that was worth seeking was something to hope for and anyone, or anything that even suggested that in any degree was lapped up with both hands. "Anguished by the passing away of Shri Kundan Shah". A dazzling mix of the comic and an acute sense of failure of human aspiration, Shah's art was not interested in hiding the fact that life was cruel.
